term. we do have some issues coming up. the debt ceiling obviously one of them. the second question is we start to get the economic data. how big of a hit from the tax increaseses, payroll tax holiday, and what do those numbers which may be a bit on the soft side do to stocks? >> absolutely. that is the question of the day, isn't it, jared. the ceiling debate, the u.s. set to hit that $16 trillion limit on borrowing in the next month if we haven't hit it yet. let's take a listen to what president obama had to say about the potential battle looming in congress. >> markets could go haywire, interest rates would spike for anybody who borrows money. every homeowner with a mortgage, every student with a college loan, every small business own whole wants to grow and hire. >> jared, how does this play out? >> well, we're beginning to hear lots of sounds from republicans that we're in a compromising mode than we heard, say, a week ago. right now they're talking about perhaps an increase in the debt ceiling that lasts for a couple of months, that is offering that to the president. frankly, a

.a.s.t. ♪ gerri: republicans go for a short-term increase in the debt ceiling, but how can we tackle ♪ gerri: retreating or regrouping? house republicans putting to a vote raising the debt ceiling for three months, but are they backing off of their demands for spending cuts in exchange for raising the debt limit? with more on this, grover norquist, president for americans for tax reform. great to have you here. other republicans doing the right thing? >> i think so. there are three tools the republicans have to force obama to focus on spending, which she does not want to do it and will do unless forced. first is the sequester which starts march 1st or 2nd. that is a hundred billion dollars per year. that is the real cut in spending that will happen. the other one is the continuing resolution which starts march 4/7. we have a continuing resolution. they are the republicans that can put obama on a very short leash and only give him a continuing resolution for a week for two or three. cut the spending each time. those are two very powerful mechanisms. gerri: you don't in addition of the purse s
inaugural gifts to president obama and vice president biden had a charming picture. debt ceiling, gun control on the agenda, the second term honeymoon is likely to end quickly. the president struck assertive tone in the inaugural address. >> we cannot substitute speck taggal for politics, or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> the republicans in congress have been defined by the actions. that is why the polling numbers are poor. >> in an interview with the "washington post," white house communication director dan pfeiffer suggested mr. obama is worthy of the task, but republicans are not. "there is a moment of opportunity now that is important. what is frustrating is that we don't have a political system. or an opposition party worthy of the opportunity. pfeiffer told fox it was a message to the country, not just republican parties. but a key senator sounded troubled by a tone heading to a new term with the nation facing serious issues requiring leadership. >> both parties need to work together to solve big proble problems. the democrats need help from the president to lay out t
is getting congress to increase the nation's debt ceiling at that talk about cutting the debt. that's where some think he will try to cement his legacy. >> he's going to try to get our long term in thailand obligations under control and set us on a new fiscal course. >> the president's first foreign-policy priority last term was israeli-palestinian peace. it's unlikely to take the top spot the second time, where most expect the president's focus to be on iran. >> it's hard to believe if we can't get a meaningful negotiation within the next two years that you will not have it read capable of producing a nuclear weapons. then, the u.s. has the choice in its negotiations -- will the solution be containment or is it going to be a preventive strike? >> as he takes the oath again, he will do it with the experience of that presidencies are often formed by crises that happened outside of their control. he will know all folksy brought here last i did not change washington. he will try something -- you have to try something new if you want to accomplish his ambitious agenda this type. >> there are re
include a provision in the debt ceiling legislation saying that lawmakers will not be paid if they do not pass a budget blueprint. was it right to step back from challenging the president over raising the debt ceiling? >> well, i think the house proposal is a step in the right direction. no doubt the senate hasn't done it's job. it's been nearly four years since it's passed a budget. but it doesn't go nearly far enough. we have a crisis. i just got back last week from afghanistan. and i had multiple servicemen and women clasp me on the arm and say, please do something about the debt and deficit. we're bankrupting the country. that's what the american people are looking for. and to date, politicians have both parties have been unwilling to take even a tiny step in the right direction. we've got to fix the problem. >> the senate has to pass a budget. do you believe that? >> i do. >> why has it been four years since you've done that? >> well, let me answer this. this was a major victory for the president. the republicans have now twice lost out on fiscal issues in the last month. first f
in raising the debt ceiling. >> would you support a short-term measure to force you to pass a budget? >> i think it should be longer because we don't want to play fiscal cliff every three months. but it's a positive step. >> you never get a clean debt ceiling raise. >> yes, you should. >> that's not a question of whether you should. but historically it's not been the case. >> mitch mcconnell proposed it two years ago and we passed it. but let me say this on the budget. we democrats have always intended to do a budget this year. for two reasons. first, it is not true that we haven't had budget control in effect over the last several years. the budget control act of 2011 put rigid spending cuts that are in effect -- that were in effect last year. we cut $1 trillion. we didn't like it. it was much more of a republican type proposal than ours. in effect, it expires this year. so we need a budget. but second, it's going to be a great opportunity for us. because in our budget that we will pass, we will lift tax reform, which many of my republican colleagues liked, but it will include revenues. i

people out of unemployment, and bring a renewed energy to our country. coming up, will the debt ceiling debate delay your tax refund? next in the president obama has begun his second term by declaring the possibilities are limitless. our political panel takes a look at the next four years. ♪ >>> from our fox business studios in new york, here, again, is gerri willis. gerri: well, not wasting a second of the second term, president obama making it clear who is in charge the next four years laying out a bold agenda in the inaugural address. that's how i read it. with more, maryann marsh, a democratic strategist, and rich lawry, editor of "the national review. " what do you think of the speech? >> audacious. one, it was an unabashedly progressive speech, shorn of the pose that's characterized as rhetoric. it also, i think, was audacious in its appropriation of the tradition of the american foundings. it was a direct challenge to republicans and the tea party saying you are obsessed with the founders. you are wrong. i am the one firmly within the tradition, and you are outside the mainstre
of the tea party which supported him to some sort of compromise short term, at least, on the debt ceiling. >> was it compromise or just a strategy to move a bigger fight down the road? >> i think it's an indication, a telltale sign about where the republicans are. four years ago, when the president was making that speech, republicans were meeting at night. >> exactly. >> deciding how to defeat him when he won for re-election. they lost that, big time. he had a very robust electoral victory and significant popular vote victory. now the republicans are in disarray, trying to organize their party so they have a future. and they're going to have to deal with the reality of that as well. it is a party that is so broken into a lot of parts on the gop side and there's going to have to be a lot of mending down and more outreach as well. >> couple of key areas. the president has focused on energy independence. people close to him say that could be an unlikely bipartisan legacy for president obama and health care. party line vote, divided the country. implementation will be tough. he will have to s
is what president obama said monday about the debt ceiling. >> so i want to be clear about this, the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending, it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. >> mike: well, according to the congressional record, in 2006, then senator barack obama had this statement just before a debt ceiling vote and i quote, the fact that we are here today to debate raising america's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure, it's a sign that the u.s. government can't pay its own bills, it's a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. leadership means that the buck stops here. instead, washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today on the backs of our children and grandchildren, therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. in 2008, candidate obama blamed president bush and called the growing debt unpatriotic. >> number 43 added 4

out of g.o.p. in washington that they will raise the debt ceiling without a large political fight in washington, effectively giving the market some room to move higher without washington standing in the way in terms of their bureaucratic lock-up. david: but peter the president essentially said the -- he did throw a line to the deficit but immediately after he said we need to invest in the economy, more spending. how will the market respond to the fact that we have a president who doesn't seem to be prepared to negotiate on spending? >> the markets are going to demand that the president negotiate on spending. the markets will behave in ways that punish the president if he does not come to the table with sensible and balanced approach to spending cuts. we've gotten our revenue increase in terms of the taxes and the highest, 1, 2 percent. it is now time for the president to come to the table with some entitlement reform, tax code changes, adjustments or a complete rewriting of the tax code, and if the markets don't see a sensible approach to an ever-increasing deficit to the tune of
the congress you are going to see on debt ceiling. the republicans in the house are talking about a short-term view of that. it certainly would avoid disaster coming up for the end of march. you will still have the issue of raising it for the long term. on the republican side there is no real appetite to do that without the reforms. same for gun-control. a lot of the agenda items that the president announced last week, the 23 executive actions you will see taken piece by piece. the easiest one to accomplish will be those that come forward the fastest, and the same for immigration reform. there is a lot that could be done and a comprehensive approach, but i think you will see that come down to the very bare minimum that both sides are able to agree on. >> let me follow up with a vote that will happen on wednesday. that will give another three months and the extension of the debt limit. weird is that position? why delay that for three months? where does that put them in march and april? >> this is an acknowledgement that they have lost the debt ceiling essentially as a leveraged tool they have b
a deal the first time, the first time with a the debt ceiling 600 billion dollar number they came to and agreed to john boehner went over to the white house and ready to sign the deal and president obama said, no, make it 800, and moved the goal post and the mouse democrats say we'll punt this, kick the can down the road until april, the debt ceiling, let you raise the debt ceiling and violate the things we promised we wouldn't do to the people that elected us. in return, you guys, senate democrats come up with a budget and you haven't passed one in 1300 some days. chuck schumer says i'll make a deal and take you up on the offer guess what, in the new budget we're going to tax more, tax all you people to agreed to the deal that they just came to january 1st, that deal is done we'll keep that and give another, another bite of at that apple. stuart: this is a financial issue. it's a budget issue, so they need a straight up or down vote in the senate and the democrats have a majority in the senate, but i'll put it to you, a couple of democrats there, who are going to say we're not al
of addressing? why we continue to do that? we don't have a debt ceiling is my contention because every time we run against it, we increase it. so what we have to do is take time out. this government is twice the size it was 11 years ago. there's a lot of great things the government does. a lot of great things the government does not within the enumerated powers, but the first thing before we touch either of those two things, let's get rid of this stuff that doesn't work. and say to the american people, we flipped the last 30 years in this country off of the next 30. all of us are going to have to participate in paying to get out of this hole if in fact you care about your children. i had this experience in oklahoma city town hall meeting. try care for retired military was put in 1995. everybody before that, when they recruit in the military was told you cannot health care when you retire the space available basis at a military hospital. i've not heard that from hardly anybody that is written to me that retired before 1995. they promised me health care for the rest of my life. pedestal as promi
could say. going to wait three more months and fight this fight again on the debt ceiling. between now and then there is lot of work to be done. >> yeah, but obama has a tailwind going into his second term in terms of the economy. just a couple figures to give you some idea. if wash does nothing special to help the economy over the next four years we're probably still going to see 10 million new jobs by the time obama leaves office in 2017. in his first term the economy only created $470,000 jobs. there is good and bad news for obama. the bad news he will not fight a horrible recession when he started out in 2009. the bad news, because the economy will sort of be limping along i don't think he will find a lot of support for some of the economic measures he wants to see, somewhat he might call job stimulating ideas. so the real question for obama in his second term is, what is he going to do new to help really reinvigorate an economy that just kind of is tired right now. i don't think we've heard any new ideas, including today in his speech. that is one of the things i will be looking f
